Bill Aiming to Protect Traits Associated With Race Pace the California Senate Floor
May 10, 2019
California SB 188, which aims to protect traits such as hairstyle and texture from discrimination in the workplace and schools, passed the Senate floor April 22 in a 37-0 bipartisan vote. SB 188 specifically amends the definition of “race” under FEHA to include “traits historically associated with race, such as hair texture and protective hairstyles,” including “braids, locks, and twists.” The legislative process is still in its early stages, so SB 188 could still be amended significantly before it reaches the Governor's desk.
